Case Note: Dying, unrepentant pedophile too dangerous to release...


In U.S. v. Unrein, No. 8:14-CR-262-VMC-JSS, 2022 WL 1212809 (M.D. Fla. Apr. 25, 2022) (Covington, J) the court found defendant too dangerous to release, even though defendant is dying, explaining: “The United States concedes that Unrein has established an extraordinary and compelling reason for release: his terminal diagnosis with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma with an 18-month life expectancy. (Doc. # 210 at 3). The United States nevertheless argues the Motion should be denied because Unrein is a danger to the community. (Id.). The Court agrees. A court should only grant a motion for release if it determines that the defendant is not a danger to any other person or to the community. U.S.S.G. § 1B1.13(2). Likewise, Section 3553(a) requires the imposition of a sentence that, among other things, takes into account the history and characteristics of the defendant, protects the public, reflects the seriousness of the crime, and promotes respect for the law. 18 U.S.C. § 3553(a). Unrein is an ongoing threat and danger to the community, particularly children. Unrein drove from Pasco County to Citrus County to engage in sexual acts with what he thought was a 12-year-old child. (Doc. # 210 at 3; Doc. # 147 at 5-6). He also possessed multiple images of child pornography, including images of babies and toddlers. (Doc. # 147 at 6). The Motion also reveals that Unrein has not accepted responsibility for his crimes. (Doc. # 206 at 18). As the United States notes, Unrein has not “sought any psychological treatment or counseling (formally or otherwise) relating to sex offender rehabilitation programs or therapies.” (Doc. # 210 at 4). Finally, despite Unrein's serious medical condition, early release would not adequately reflect the seriousness of his crimes or promote respect for the law.”
